Description: Black turpentine beetle infestations can be reduced substantially by minimizing injuries to residual trees during logging and avoiding harvesting on waterlogged soils to prevent excessive root damage. After thinning, losses can be minimized by spraying visibly injured trees with lindane immediatly, checking susceptible stands frequently for infestations, and applyling lindane as soon as beetles are discovered.
Keywords: Dendroctumus terebrans Oliv., Pinus taeda L., logging damage, beetle infestation
